While videos and vlogs are gaining popularity this past year, there are reasons why blogging is still – and will continue to be – a big thing. For starters, a blog is the anchor for all of your online activities. When you talk about a topic on social media, for instance, you can always refer to a blog post with more information.

Blogging is also easy and should definitely be part of your digital lifestyle. You can use existing social networks or content sharing platforms – or even set up your own hosting account – and start sharing your thoughts in minutes. These next few apps will make blogging even easier to do.

A Good FTP Client

While it is easy to manage your blog from the backend interface, there are times when you need to upload files manually or make some changes to the blog or CMS platform itself. In these circumstances, you need a good FTP client to help you.

Windows users can always turn to FileZilla for reliable FTP tools. The app has been around for years and is one of the best FTP clients you can find today. Not only will you be able to use it for free, you will also get features and tools that are normally reserved for premium apps. It works with all hosting services, including WordPress hosting from companies like BestWebHosting.co.uk.

There are apps for iOS and Android too. AndDTP is the app to use if you’re looking for an FTP client for Android. The app’s user interface may seem outdated, but the tools and features available underneath the design are all useful for bloggers. For iOS users, there’s FTPManager.

Mobile Image Editing

Another thing that helps more people to blog is a smartphone camera. It is very easy to tell stories with images and videos thanks to the high quality cameras now available in smartphones. You can snap a picture of your latest gadget accessory or the new book you just picked up from the store and write an entire story about it.

For sharp and vivid pictures, Snapseed is the app to use. This app is available on both iOS and Android; it is also available for free with no in-app purchase to make. Snapseed has all the tools you need to crop, rotate and improve the pictures you have taken for your blog. Once you are done with the editing, you can export the photos and post it online.

Blogging Apps

Almost every blogging platform has its own native apps. WordPress has an app for both iOS and Android. Blogger is available on Android, allowing those who uses Google’s blogging platform to manage their blogs on the go.

There are apps from third-party developers too. Blogsy for iOS, for instance, is compatible with WordPress, Blogger and a lot of other CMS platforms. BlogPress is another interesting app to try, especially for those running a Joomla or Drupal site.

As you can see, there is no shortage of apps and tools that will help you blog while on the go. With setting up and maintaining your own blog or website being as easy as it is today, there is no reason why you shouldn’t get started right away.
